How important is the honeymoon? It's pretty important, but so not important we're willing to break the bank or screw up our jobs.


Are you going on a honeymoon? Indeed.


What budget did you set for the honeymoon? $8K ish.


Where are you going or where would you like to go on your honeymoon? We'd love to go to Italy, but we feel the amount of money we have will only give us an HM where we keep worrying if we have enough. So we're doing 9 days in DC!


How long of a trip did you plan? We'll leave on a Friday afternoon and fly back two Sundays later.


What made you choose your honeymoon spot? We like museums.


Are you leaving right after the wedding or at a later date? Nope. We were married in 3/11, and our honeymoon will be 5/12. That's a 14 month delay in case you're wondering. 14. One four. FOURTEEN MONTH DELAY! oy.

How important is the honeymoon? SO important!

How important is the honeymoon? I think it's important to be by ourselves with no worries for some time right after the wedding


Are you going on a honeymoon? We're taking more of a mini-moon since I don't get paid vacation at my job yet :/


What budget did you set for the honeymoon? When we were first planning on taking an actual honeymoon we set the cap at around a grand. But now we don't really need one cause it's way cheaper than our original plans.


Where are you going or where would you like to go on your honeymoon? We're just spending a couple nights in Palm Springs, CA. Then the last week of December I have off cause I work in aerospace so we might go away somewhere for a few days.


How long of a trip did you plan? Just 2 days


What made you choose your honeymoon spot? Cause the place we'd be staying at would be paid for already and it's only about an hour and half drive


Are you leaving right after the wedding or at a later date? We're staying at the Embassy Suites in Santa Ana on our wedding night then leaving the next morning :)

How important is the honeymoon? it is growing more important as the day nears.  I cannot wait for it!


Are you going on a honeymoon? yes.  I was sort of ambivalent, knowing how much it costs, but also really liking the idea of just skipping town after the wedding!


What budget did you set for the honeymoon? no real budget...like jocemae, we found a great deal, went for it, and are registering for the HM so that makes a big difference.


Where are you going or where would you like to go on your honeymoon? Montreal.  Someone told me other day, "that sounds kind of random!"  Which I guess is true.  But we live in South Florida.  It's hot all year.  We are near the beach.  We don't need the islands (and FI did a cruise with his BM almost two years ago, right before he proposed...actually it was then he first told them, "dude, I want to propose to Emily cause I really miss her.") but we love pretty cities.  My first choice was Paris, but Montreal was on this continent and neither of us have ever been there (which is a shock for my globe-trotting FI).  We also got a SWEET hotel room and we're so excited!


How long of a trip did you plan?  Five days - just long enough.


What made you choose your honeymoon spot? as I mentioned earlier, neither of us have ever been there, it's an exciting city, and my family actually all comes from Quebec and I've never been, so it'll be neat to be back in the Motherland, so to speak.


Are you leaving right after the wedding or at a later date?  wedding is on a Friday, leaving on Monday.  if people came all this way for the wedding, we might as well hang out with them for a couple of days before skipping town.  :P

How important is the honeymoon? Very!! Its important to have the break and just be together..


Are you going on a honeymoon? We just got back actually!!


What budget did you set for the honeymoon? Ours was $15,000 - and we spent it! lol


Where are you going or where would you like to go on your honeymoon? We spent 5 weeks travelling the USA (we're Aussies!) Visited Vegas, Colorado, New York (inc World Fire and Police games) Florida and DISNEYWORLD!!


How long of a trip did you plan? 5 weeks!


What made you choose your honeymoon spot? We're both travelled a lot and we just LOVE the USA!


Are you leaving right after the wedding or at a later date? We had a 9 month break. It helped us save $$ plus we timed it to line up with the World Fire and Police games, and it also meant travelling in the USA summer/fall rather than winter.. :-)

How important is the honeymoon?  It's pretty important to us, especially FH, because it's a fun, stress-free time for us to have as we start on this new excursion in our lives.


Are you going on a honeymoon?  It's our hope to have a mini-moon after the wedding and then the "real" honeymoon later on.


What budget did you set for the honeymoon? We're on a pretty tight budget for both; for the mini-moon, we looked at hotels whose rates were less than $150 per night; we'll have a bit more flexibility with the real honeymoon.


Where are you going or where would you like to go on your honeymoon?  For our mini-moon, we're driving up the road to Houston and we'll spend the weekend there; for the honeymoon, we're going to stay in my FSIL's cabin in the woods of Arkansas and visit various areas around there.


How long of a trip did you plan?  Mini-moon:  Friday-Sunday; we're hoping that the honeymoon will be about a week.


What made you choose your honeymoon spot?  Houston was close, and while Galveston would have been awesome, it would be Spring Break, and I really didn't want to have to deal with the insanity.  And FH has wanted to take me to Arkansas since the first time he visited his sister and BIL, and you can't beat such a romantic lodging that's free!


Are you leaving right after the wedding or at a later date?  Because of FH's work schedule, we're hoping to leave for the mini-moon the Friday after the wedding, and for the honeymoon, we're hoping it can be in the summer.

Ooh la la, great trips ladies!


How important is the honeymoon? Important, but not enough to sacrifice TOO much money...


Are you going on a honeymoon? Yes. At first we werent sure, but we definitely are :)


What budget did you set for the honeymoon? No budget yet. Hopefully find a good deal. It'd be nice to keep it under 3,000 total.


Where are you going or where would you like to go on your honeymoon? Probably a cruise because it seems most cost efficient. But I haven't done my research yet, so no clue!! Somewhere we both have never been. Gosh, I would love to go EVERYWHERE!


How long of a trip did you plan? Probably about a week to 10 days.


What made you choose your honeymoon spot? Haven't yet. That's why I like reading these threads. Getting ideas 


Are you leaving right after the wedding or at a later date? Probably within a few days
